The Go Drive 1.8” SSD is perfect for:
- Server deployment: Can fit 24 1.8” SSDs in a 1U chassis (such as the Dell PowerEdge R630) that normally holds just 10 2.5” SSDs.
- Small form-factor requirements: millions of ultrabooks , sub-notebooks, and netbooks utilize the 1.8” drive form factor.
- Convertible tablets: The Go Drive 1.8” SSD is certified for proper form, fit, and function with the Dell XT Latitude and other tablet PCs.
DuraClass™ Technologies for world-class SSD reliability, performance, and power efficiency.
- DuraWrite™ extends the drive endurance by 20x or more compared to standard SSD controllers.
- Advanced Wear Leveling & Monitoring distributes data evenly across the entire drive.
- Advanced Read/Disturb Management safeguards against data corruption by spreading read/write cycles across the flash components.
- Intelligent garbage collection "recycling" maintains optimal write speeds by clearing blocks of unneeded data during off-peak usage times.
- RAISE™ (Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) protects the data on your drive from flash block failures without typical RAID inefficiencies.
- Superior error correction (ECC) protection for longest data retention and drive life.
